more summer

We made freezer jam from some of our strawberries. We did not clean the counter behind Ella and Molly! We planted 4 tomato plants in our very sad, once grand herb garden. This used to have oregano, chives, mint, garlic, rhubarb, basil, sage (pretty PURPLE sage), and a rosemary plant that was waist high. I loved that rosemary plant! And then things started to die. Now it just has some oregano and garlic. And these happy little tomato plants. This is a far cry from the days when Adrian would plant 50 tomato plants. And equally large amounts of corn, potatoes, onion, cucumbers, etc.

Snap we only have room for 4 tomato plants, we are trying to grow some potatoes in tubs this year. I have been meaning to blog about it!

I am about to make rhubarb jam and could do with a few of those strawberries to go with it!

Don't worry about the counter, no one would have looked if you didn't point it out. I am jealous of your garden. I can't even keep a house plant alive.
